Wheelchair user Darren Heaton yesterday completed a 10 day Walk for Heroes from Manchester to Wellington Barracks in London, in the company of Bertie Bear, the official mascot of the Grenadier Guards both riding comfortably on a TGA Breeze 4.
Darren, who's son is currently on military tour in Afghanistan with the Grenadier Guards, combated severe weather to reach the Wellington Barracks.
He has already raised 3,000 for The Grenadier Guards Colonel's Fund, SSAFA, St. Dunstan's and The Poppy Appeal and was supported by Sir Nigel Gifford OBE, Penny Mallory and Eddie Kidd.
"We are all pretty shattered but the sense of achievement is fantastic," said Darren after completing the trip. "We have met so many amazing and generous people on the way down and there has been a lot of press interest that should help raise as much money as possible to help injured Grenadier Guards.
"I would like to thank everyone who has made this challenge possible, especially TGA Electric Leisure Ltd," he added. "The Walk for Heroes was only made a reality by the Breeze 4 scooter kindly loaned by TGA that has tackled all the inclement weather and varying terrain throughout the fundraiser with ease."
